BPicked up a vibration in the Brembo Brake Pkg on my 2018 2SS with ONLY 4500 miles on it. Garage Queen, Never driven in the rain. Dealer says it's because I have been using tire shine products and they have compromised the pads and rotors and says pads need replacing and rotors turned on all 4 wheels for a total of $975 dollars. I have had several makes of different brands with Brembo Pkg and NEVER run into this problem. Is he "blowing smoke" up my you know where. I think the Rotors are WARPED. Never raced or driven hard. HELP !! (I correctly "Bedded in the Brakes' when purchased. NO problems until now??)

overspray stinks

IMO it's unlikely you warped the rotors unless you got them really hot from track-day, auto-x or a 100-0 highway panic stop or similar. However, there could be oils from tire products on part of the rotors causing uneven pad bite if you sprayed the tire shine directly onto the rubber and some overspray got onto the discs.

Suggestion: Remove the pads and give the pads and rotors a good cleaning with some CRC or other top-shelf brake cleaner.

Pro-tip: Never spray any car care product directly on the car. Always spray the applicator with sprayer pointed away from the car, then wipe on the product.

Could it be effecting brake performance, maybe, but did it ruin things...no. Id try an independent shop for a second opinion, too. It's not a bad idea as suggested to pull off the front wheels and wash the rotors and pads down with brake cleaner. Brembo pads pull right out of the top of the caliper, real easy to do.
